    Winemaker's Notes:

    Volcanic Hill is comprised of 8 acres of south facing hillside vineyard. It is the warmest of all our micro-climates. The color of the soil is gray, and the consistency is that of fluffy, volcanic ash, originally deposited from the eruption of Mt. Konocti 8 million years ago.

    Volcanic Hill is the longest lived of our wines. Our winemaker describes these wines as "full bodied, loaded with intense ripe berry fruit, cassis, violets and a smoky richness, finishing with good length and firm tannins." The Volcanic Hill bottling includes a small amount of the extra-ordinary Petit Verdot grape.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The longer this wine breathes in the glass the better it gets. At first sip, it's obviously a very good wine, richly tanninc and deeply impressive in blackberries, cassis and oak, with a firm minerality that grounds it. But as it warms and airs, the fascinating palate begins to unfold. Will age effortless for many years. Drink now-2020

    Volcanic Hill, a white slope facing south, creates the most generous wine of Diamond Creek's estate vineyards. Now that more than half the slope has been replanted, that generosity is emphasized by the exhuberance the younger vines bring to the blend, though the wine is also insanely tannic. It opens with floral scents of violets and builds to a rich intensity of dark fruit and soil-driven tannin. The richness of 2007 is weel sutied to the character of Volcanic hill.
